Blackhead Killer Peel Off Mask

When StyleLux asked me to try out their new Blackhead Killer peel off face mask I was quite intrigued as I wasn’t sure what to expect. I received 5 sachets and was eager to try the product out, although it didn’t really say on the sachet what the product was for or results to expect so I had to visit their website to find out this information. I found out from the StyleLux website that the Blackhead Killer is a peel-off mask that removes pimples, blackheads, impurities, and excess oil in minutes.
I have combination skin and often suffer from spots and blocked pores, so I’m happy to try anything that says it combats against this. I did think that the name of the product was a little sinister though!
As you can see from the image above the sachet was rather brief in its application directions too, it just said to allow to dry for 10 minutes and then peel off.
The mask itself is a thick, dark brown tar-like cream, and it didn’t feel very luxurious applying it to the face. I would suggest that if you do use this product you make sure you don’t answer the door when you are wearing it as a dark brown sticky face is never a good look! I left the mask on for 10 minutes, during which time it dried and made my face feel very tight.
I found it very difficult to remove the mask, as it dried hard on my skin and I could feel it pulling all of the tiny hairs on my forehead and cheeks as I removed it – it felt just like removing a plaster from your arm! It also pulled terribly at the delicate skin around my eyes, it was very painful and in the end I had to give up peeling the mask and just removed the excess with a facecloth. I would definitely not recommend this product, it is extremely harsh on the skin. On the plus side I now have a completely hairless face!
After I had removed the product my skin did feel very cleansed, but the skin around my eyes and lips felt quite sore where the mask had pulled the skin. I won’t be using Blackhead Killer again, and I would suggest that if you were to use this product just use it on small specific areas of the face – perhaps just the chin and nose – and keep it well away from eyes, lips and eyebrows.
UPDATE 27th August 2017 – since writing this post I have read quite a lot of worrying reviews from people who say that after ordering this product they have unknowingly been signed up to a monthly subscription of Blackhead Killer Peel Off Mask packs, and are being chased by StyleLux for money that they say they are owed. It doesn’t sound very good! Personally I would suggest that you avoid this brand. However if you’re still interested in having a look then Blackhead Killer Peel Off Mask is priced at £14.95 for 5 sachets and is available from StyleLux.
